The Gulf (All You Can Eat): From the Staff

As an individual that enjoys pop culture, I actually don’t frequent many conventions (when I say I don’t frequent them I 1 001mean I don’t enjoy them much at all). There’s a myriad of reasons why, but that’s not what this is about. What it is about though is this amazing annual convention that I went to in Small Press Expo (SPX). Since its inaugural year in 1994, SPX has become well renowned as a longstanding festival for writers and artists from all over the world to share their own independent comics and artwork. The intimacy of the festival in addition to being an outlet for these artists to present and sell their works that aren’t accessible through more commercial means is what instantly piqued my interest. As I made my way through the small (but immensely crowded) venue, I made it to this small booth in the corner of the room and here is this young and charming indie artist by the name of Nguyen Khoi Nguyen. I walk up assuming to do the same thing I always do at these things (or the few I have been to); browse around, window shop a little… and walk away (I’m broke, sue me). But this time was different. It didn’t take long at all for him to ingratiate himself as opposed to simply shilling whatever he had on display. Our short conversation did inevitably (as it should have) lead to his current work and what I found out is that sometimes less really is more.

Now many want to try to share their vision with the world through the extraordinary. Fantasy
and fiction rule the world of comics and graphic novels with an iron fist. Buyers (like me) consume their fill of super-powered heroes struggling against whatever opposition floats the author’s boat. We all by our share of illustrations depicting people in extenuating circumstances whether it be a post-apocalyptic land of mutant people or a futuristic setting where the planet is taken over by a technologically advanced overlord. Tales of life, death, love, action, and adventure, get told over and over in these works and while always fun, can be overwhelming (or underwhelming). For a serene break from the norm, I suggest The Gulf (All You Can Eat).

2 002This multimedia graphic novel illustrates the life (both past and present) of author, Nguyen Khoi Nguyen and his Vietnamese-American family. It may seem unassuming at first glance, but it is filled with interesting hidden gems of humor and captivates you in a fascinating way when you finish. Even the chapters themselves flip both between the author’s life as a young child growing up in Cape Coral, Florida in 1987 and a fairly interesting conversation had between his brother and sister in his current home of Washington D.C. Now as a hyper-exuberant kid whose family owns a Chinese buffet restaurant, one would expect the hi jinks to ensue a fair amount… and you’d be right. 2 004It is so funny to see these young siblings (his brother and sister are very prominent characters) and never fails to put a smile on my face as it resembles my own siblings a great deal. The art seems simple in the beginning, but the subtle use of music and traditional vernacular all help to bring life to the panels and the story in an original way. The dialogue is honest and endears you to the characters as if you know them yourself (or know people like them in your life).

In the scene of modern-day art (of any genre), ego reigns supreme and everyone is trying to make the biggest story alive in a thinly veiled attempt to make themselves a larger name. Sometimes, it’s creating the most convoluted piece you can, and sometimes it’s pandering to the lowest common denominator (and those things don’t have to be mutually exclusive). “Pretentious” can be a common word for me to use, but rarely could I use the word “humble” 2 003for a lot of works that I’ve seen. Fortunately for me, The Gulf is the embodiment of the term “humble”. So many times we pick up a book and use it to escape reality and whatever problems we have. While it can be fun and therapeutic, sometimes we become so disconnected from what reality is we lose sight of what is important. Nguyen Khoi Nguyen has created a piece of work in which its strongest asset and appeal isn’t the flash and flare of other comics or novels. It isn’t the grandiose and intimidating expansion of its world. It isn’t any of the common tropes of other written works (highly regarded or not). It is the intrinsic ability minimize the experience for the reader and relate to the common experiences of people through the life of the author and his family. It’s a reminder of the importance of love and family and that maybe the escape that people are looking for can be found in the catacombs of one’s fond memories of their youth (and we all have our fair share).It’s definitely what I would describe as a “colorful” autobiography shaped in the form of a graphic novel. The chapters (4 available, 10 total scheduled) are short in length, but gives you your fill of fun and a bit of introspection. It’s not an ambitious read at all, and why should it be? It’s fun stories about a guy and his family bound together by the business of food and personal experiences. It is reflective in its own right and for me, it’s got everything I need when I want to take a break from what I usually read. It’s a good read and I am happy that I got a chance to pick it up when I did. Nguyen Khoi Nguyen is an intriguing man. He’s a jazz musician and a filmmaker on top of his aptitude for comic art. If you want to purchase his work, you can find it on iBooks or tiny.cc/nguyenmade. To learn more, check out his website at ngknguyen.com. I think it’ll be worth anyone’s time.

Rick and Morty: From The Staff

rick-and-morty-season-2

So, around this time every Sunday I’m usually winding down. Maybe get a nice workout in (it’s actually not very nice), get a shower, and prepare a good dinner (mostly cold cereal). Guess you can say my evenings can get a bit crazy right? Afterwards, I settle in and prepare to watch one of my favorite shows on television in Rick and Morty before the nights end… except last week that didn’t happen. Last week Rick and Morty saw a break at the halfway mark through its second season on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. Needless to say, my night was underwhelming after that. Now some of you are thinking “What’s so great about Rick and Morty?” or something similar. Well, for those who have been living under a rock or are still on the fence about it, let’s dive right in shall we?


Rick and Morty is an Adult Swim original created by Dan Harmon (Community) and Justin Roiland (Fish Hooks, Adventure Time). The show’s most titular characters are of course Rick; the brilliant, but sociopathologic scientist and Morty; the unassuming and anxiety riddled teenage grandson (both voiced by Justin Roiland). After being absent for 20 years, Rick has returned to move in with his daughter Beth son-in-law Jerry and has turned their garage into his own crazy lab for his experiments and adventures. Now that He’s back, Rick takes Morty (and recently Morty’s sister Summer) on adventures through time and space.


rick-and-morty-eyes

Rick himself is one of the funniest character the show has from week to week. His crass humor and stark delivery makes his interactions with any character a treat. Every situation that he finds himself in is never too much to handle and Morty, while apprehensive and easily shaken at the beginning, has started to slowly take on his grandfathers demeanor (although it never stops them from butting heads). Summer seemed like your run-of-the-mill 17-year-old with annoying drama and constant angst, but after her experiences with Rick and Morty, she is changing in her own right as she is experiencing more of what her younger brother has already become desensitized to. Their adventures intertwine a lot later in the first season and have become common throughout the second season. Beth and Jerry seem to have their own dealings away from the rest of the family and deal with more menial issues comparatively. Despite the fact that their adventures look much less interesting on the surface, more times than not they can be just as funny and entertaining.

Now this is not your normal late-night animation. The jokes are frequent, but are often clever and done with a purpose other Screen-shot-2014-01-21-at-10.03.59-AMthan humor. Nothing is one note as there are always multiple stories going on from episode to episode. While other shows use multiple stories, they often fall flat and only serve to fill time with no substance. Characters often don’t change or do so only when the plot requires them to be reminded of it. Things go back to the same every week. With Rick and Morty, that isn’t the case. Things happen to people. And they change, for better or worse. Emotions get the best of the characters. Situations don’t work out and you see how that affects the characters and the decisions they make in future episodes. The audience can still see some of the humor coming from a mile away. What they don’t see is that sometimes the jokes can be accompanied by some true and heavy introspective moments that can turn a hearty laugh from viewers into a somber silence.


Rick and Morty is always good for a solid laugh. It is also good for a deep look into the vices that plague many in real life. It serves as a reminder that even a show that goes so far out of the norm in art and story and one that is set in an outrageously different universe, can make relevant and invoke seminal emotions in scenarios that show characters (and as an extension, real life people) as complex beings. Rick and Morty is back this Sunday and I couldn’t be happier. For those of you haven’t seen it or don’t get it, just check it out once or twice. You may laugh. You may even cry. Or you may just hate it. Either way, it won’t kill you to give it a look.

Rick and Morty returns tonight and catch new episodes every Sunday at 11:30 pm EST / 10:30 pm CT on Cartoon Network

Satoru Iwata: A Retrospective

_84234774_gettyimages-465814989

It’s been a bit of time since the unfortunate passing of Nintendo President , a man who understood the pure joy and element of play. But rather than mourn for the loss, we wanted to take a quick moment to look back at the wonderful things he did for the company.


A long time lead programmer for Nintendo’s HAL Laboratory, Satoru Iwata helped bring to life such games as Balloon Fight, Shigesato Itoi’s Earthbound, Super Smash Bros., and various Kirby games throughout HAL’s early years. He even assisted Game Freak, at the time a very young development team, accomplish the astounding feat of programming and compressing the entire Kanto region into Pokémon Gold/Silver when no one thought it were possible.

In 2002, Iwata became the Global President & CEO of Nintendo, succeeding Hiroshi Yamauchi. In this new position, Iwata was able to usher in the Nintendo DS in 2004, arguably one of the best-selling handheld systems ever released. He also inducted the Nintendo Wii in 2006, which became a contender for one of the top-selling consoles of all time.

The company faced a bit of financial hard times after the release of the 3DS and Wii U in 2011 and 2012, respectively. However, instead of laying off employees to make up for the money lost from the systems’ lukewarm launches, Iwata cut the salaries of himself and other fellow high-ranking executives in half in order to make sure his employees still had jobs at the company. It’s a move unheard of for most corporations, but none too surprising for someone who cared deeply for his employees.

Iwata was definitely the type to find ways to interact directly with developers and fans, from the series of “Iwata Asks” interviews that gives friendly in-depth looks into the development of upcoming games, to the introduction of the “Nintendo Direct” series which brought regular updates and announcements of Nintendo products.


Iwata passed on July 11, 2015 from complications with a tumor in his bile duct, but he still had big projects set in motion after his passing. Earlier this year, he partnered with mobile company DeNA to push upcoming content to mobile devices, and already set a footprint for Nintendo’s next system codenamed “NX”, which we will hear more details of early in 2016. Representative Director Genyo Takeda and Game Designer Shigeru Miyamoto will be temporarily taking over the company as interim presidents until the company elects a proper president.

Satoru Iwata was a man praised for the fact that his experiences in the company lead him to understand all sides of Nintendo: the business to keep the company viable, the designers who create such amazing gameplay experiences, and the gamers who play through them first hand. A unique individual like him is always hard to come by, and we of the Lunchbox will never forget him.

Soulless: Novel or Manga? Does it Really Matter?

2012-03-08_soulless_manga_final_with_text

Have you read Gail Carriger’s novel Soulless?  Did you read the manga? Yes she has a manga! For those who haven’t heard of it, I’ll run a quick summary for you.


The life of a spinster in Victorian London isn’t an easy one on the best of days, but such a life becomes infinitely more complicated when said spinster is “Soulless” – A Preternatural, bridging the gap between the natural and supernatural worlds. Miss Alexia Tarabotti has this unique distinction, and when she is assailed at a formal gathering by a Rove Vampire , an encounter that results in the death of the half-starved creature, her circumstances become exponentially more complicated indeed!!

0001-0070001-008

Now caught up in an intrigue with life or death stakes, Alexia must rely on all her talents to outmatch the forces conspiring against her, but it may be the man who has caught her eye -Lord Conall Maccon- and their budding flirtation that truly drives her to her wit’s end!


Verdict: This Victorian era manga is absolutely phenomenal, not only is the story great, but the art as well! It’s beautiful, clean, and the romance is quite steamy. Gail Carriger, you definitely get an immense amount of praise from me for this piece of work.

So check it out  if you haven’t, you won’t be disappointed!

Soulless gets a 5 out of 5

+ Amazing story

+ Outstanding artwork

+ The romance actually helps makeu the story rather than hurt it

We’ll be writing articles as well as live-tweeting these events as they go along.

Besides these two events, there’s a lot of media coming out this month. For movies, we see if there’s a way to change a destructive future in Terminator Genisys, follow the birth and rise of adorable and hilarious Minions, see how a thief becomes something more in Ant-Man, watch a rise of a evil organization in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, and see a boxer win his way back to his daughter in Southpaw.

My E3 2015 Top Five!

e3_2014_nintendo_predictions_rumors_news

E3 2015, oh how alluring in concept, but lackluster in delivery. My E3 2015 Top Five was actually surprisingly easy to make because there were very few games that WOWed me that haven’t already been teased or announced. I feel E3 this year definitely didn’t have as much get up & go as last year, but E3 as a whole right now isn’t what I’m here to write about. Let’s look at the brighter picture & talk about 5 wonderful things that I enjoyed at E3 2015 (in no particular order):

E3 2015 TOP 5!

2887327-screen+shot+2015-06-16+at+11.15.28+am

Project Setsuna

Project Setsuna was one of the key revival factors in Square Enix’s abysmal conference. Project Setsuna, only teased a minute or two, showcased out-of-this-world backdrops & a gorgeous soundtrack. Currently in production by Tokyo RPG Factory, this title looks to deliver an RPG experience for the ages! It’s definitely a must-buy for me just from the first-look alone.

Anno 2205

Although very scarce on details, Anno 2205‘s trailer speaks bounds! A game about the exploration of space & colonizing the Moon, Anno 2205 could definitely be a game worth its salt in the upcoming year!

paperjambros

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam

Even though this isn’t a brand new IP & follows along in the Super Mario RPG line of games; I’m always a sucker for how Nintendo seems to bring the characters with the Mario franchise into a whole new light, incorporating wacky, over-the-top antics with our two favorite video game brothers. With two different styles of Mario juxtaposed together; this new Mario RPG is sure to give us an experience unlike any of the other RPGs before it. This game was definitely a pleasant surprise & a breath of fresh air in the Nintendo conference.

Hitman: Blindsight

Agent 47 is at it again, with even more new ways to kill than ever before! It’s something about the thrill of the hunt, solid executions, the free range of Hitman that speaks to me. December 8th, look out everybody… I’m coming for you!

microsoft-hololens-release-price

And last but certainly not least isn’t even a game… it’s Microsoft’s new gadget: the Microsoft HoloLens. Just from the special display rig done for Minecraft alone during Microsoft’s E3 conference, Microsoft HoloLens is a DAY ONE buy for me. I can only imagine the potential it has to enhance the visual interface and overall experience with video games. Microsoft HoloLens not only appeals to the hardcore gamers, but casuals as well. Free range of view, movement & control…a world literally at my fingertips & command!  Virtual reality, you gotta love it!

~And that as they say is that! Look out for all these games and more when they make their way to stores in the coming months (except Project Setsuna… no idea when that hits, but i’ll be waiting).

Top Five From E3 2015: Editor In Chief Edition

This year’s E3 2015 had a ton of great titles. Some of them coming out soon, others without even a single release date. My only challenge was to pick five out of the thousands of titles that were shown at this year’s showcase, and here they are in no particular order.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands

The tactical third person shooter from the series is back, but taking a brand new twist in the series. Instead of going through chapters, the entire game will be open world based, almost anything can happen. Setting place in Bolivia, you are part of a four man squad, issued to take down a drug operation that’s effecting the entire government. It’s up to you and your team on how you want to take them down. For example, you can go in guns blazing or you can take them down quietly. For each choice you make, you can see the consequences that follow for the drug operations as they quietly break apart from the inside, giving you a complete advantage from time to time. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands has no specific release date but will be for Playstation 4, XBOX One, and PC.

Fallout 4

After years of playing Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it’s FINALLY here. Fallout 4 takes place in Boston, Massachusetts. You play as the Lone Wanderer from Vault 111, waking up from cryogenic sleep 200 years after the A-Bomb hits. As you leave the Vault, you explore post-apocalyptic landscapes, surviving wave after wave of mutated enemies, and for the first time in the series, you can customize your weapons and make your own settlements. XBOX One owners can also play with user created mods and have a free copy of Fallout 3. Fallout 4 comes out on November 10th, 2015 for the Playstation 4, XBOX One, and PC.

Horizon: Zero Dawn

It seems that Guerrilla Games is stepping out of it’s Killzone shell and giving us something new. Horizon: Zero Dawn is a brand new open world RPG. Taking place after our time and back to the stone age, technology has taken over the lands and replaced wildlife with machines. Not much is being said about Horizon: Zero Dawn, however it’s reported that this game will be released next year for the Playstation 4.

Star Wars Battlefront

It’s been a long time since Pandemic Studios was shut down and the leaks of both photos and videos of Star Wars Battlefront 3. Since then, LucaArts was bought my Disney and there was no hope of a third installment…until now. Electronic Arts will take the helm in making a brand new Star Wars Battlefront, and since last year’s E3 tease, we’ve been dying to see some actually gameplay. So far, the game looks promising, featuring a coop-mode which can be played online and off, and a 40 player online mode. Want to win the Battle of Hoth and lose the Battle of Endor? Now’s your chance! Star Wars Battlefront is released on November 17th, 2015 for the Playstation 4, XBOX One, and PC.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

This game has been pushed back long enough, but by the looks of it, it’s worth the wait. The final installment of the Uncharted series takes place three years after the events of the third game, Drake’s Deception. Teaming up with his long lost brother Sam, Drake and his brother go on a quest to go behind the conspiracy of a long lost pirate colony, while on the way, being pursued by another rival treasure hunters. The game will also bring back competitive multiplayer, which was last seen back in Uncharted 2. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End releases next year on the Playstation 4. Can’t wait but want an easy way to catch up with the series? No problem! This October 7th, pick up the Uncharted Collection on the Playstation 4, featuring all three of the original games. Oh, did we also mention that it does come with an Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Beta Pass?

Honorable Mention: Gears Of War Ultimate Collection/Gears Of War 4

I don’t have an XBOX One yet, but besides the Halo franchise, I am a huge fan of Gears Of War. As of this moment, the Gears Of War Ultimate Collection Beta is going on and a lot of fans are pretty impressed and enjoying themselves at the moment. With the Gears Of War Ultimate Collection coming out this August 25th on the XBOX One, The Coalition Studios surprised everyone this past E3 2015 at the Microsoft Press Conference with a small glimpse of Gears Of War 4. It will be interesting to see how lead game director Rod Fergusson will be at the helm now since creator Cliff Bleszinski stepped down to focus on his own studio, Boss Key Productions. Am I nervous? No, because so far it’s looking great. Gears Of War 4 is expected to be released next year on XBOX One and PC.

Summertime And You Know What That Means? – Editor in Chief Message for June 2015

The sun is shining, school is out, your neighborhood pool is open, and you’re being invited to each and every family barbecue. With those things in mind, it’s official…Summer is here! We have another month of huge things happening, so here’s what we have in store for you all!

This month is E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Thousands of developers and studios come together for four days in Los Angeles to bring you the latest and upcoming video games, systems, and projects. To prepare you for this event, we’ll be writing articles or recording videos of what we expect at this year’s show. Also, if you can’t watch any livestreams of either the Bethesda Softworks, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, and SquareEnix, you’re in luck! Teh Lunchbox Publications will be covering it all on Twitter! So be sure to follow us here!

Even with E3 going on this month, we will be having another TLBX Streams event for Batman: Arkham Knight and the release of The Elder Scrolls Online.

For Summer movies, sleep with the lights on after watching Insidious: Chapter 3 or watch a group of actors make it big and spending money while making their agent go nuts in Entourage this week. Next week, we’ll be visiting a park under new management while surviving a velociraptor attack in Jurassic World and finally, see what makes us happy, sad, scared, disgusted, and angry in Pixar’s Inside Out.

You may not see your Fall shows until September but that doesn’t mean there are no great television shows. Hannibal and Netflix’s Orange is the New Black are back for their third seasons with Rick and Morty returning for a second season, but we have new upcoming shows such as Ballers and The Brink.

We have already released a June Anime Movie list here, but some of us are looking at shows such as God Eater, Non Non Biyori Repeat, and To Love-Ru: Trouble – Darkness 2nd.

Remember to LIKE and FOLLOW us on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, and Twitch for all of your up to date news and information on the entertainment world.

So from me and everyone here from Teh Lunchbox Publications, have a wonderful and safe Summer!
